Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2000 Week 12 Hansard (5 December) . . Page.. 3638..
MR STEFANIAK (continuing):
program for an individual student. Schools using this type of assessment identify its use and purpose in their information packages to students and parents.
A decision to enrol a student at a school will usually involve several factors, one of which may be the results of aptitude testing. Other factors can include whether the child attends an identified feeder school or whether siblings are already enrolled at the school. It is not common for aptitude testing to be applied at other grade levels. However, at some schools satisfactory academic progress in year 10 may be one factor considered when a student seeks enrolment in the year 11/12 program.
MR BERRY: Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a statement pursuant to standing order 46.
MR SPEAKER: Please proceed.
MR BERRY: Thank you, Mr Speaker. If I can just say before I start that this morning I protested about people making personal explanations in the course of debate. This will be a personal explanation in the course of debate. The reason I am doing so is that I may have misled the Assembly this morning. I will read from Hansard of 19 February 1997 at page 100. Mr Moore said:
The legislation that I tabled only a few minutes ago, the Gaming Machine (Amendment) Bill, was privately drafted. The Australian Hotels Association, knowing that the legislation would benefit their members, offered to have that professionally drafted for me. I accepted that.
I assume that that has been declared somewhere. I hope that it has been declared somewhere.
Mr Moore: It is there in the Hansard, which is not a bad way of declaring something.
MR BERRY: I accept it as being declared. Mr Speaker, this morning I said that the Australian Hotels Association paid for the drafting of legislation to permit the consumption of tobacco in their premises. No, they got that for free.
MR HUMPHRIES (Chief Minister, Minister for Community Affairs, Attorney - General and Treasurer): I present the following papers:
